Dark and Stormy made with Dark Rum, Ginger Beer and lime

A trio of taste awaits. Ice cold and sparkling, tangy and bittersweet. The Dark & Stormy!

While I was in the British Virgin Islands Captain Jaime told me about the Dark & Stormy cocktail. He said that the drink got its name from a boat race called the Dark and Stormy Regatta to Anegada in the British Virgin Islands. I’m not sure how true it is but I did enjoy listening to the story.
